I was thinking ... Magic Spronge (起漬魔術綿), wipe it gently (don't rub too hard), then use leather cleaner for the less stubborn stains. Then finally leather conditioner to restore the softness ...

hi there, bought it last week and put on one of my front wheels as test.

Not sure if i applied it correctly, and noticed it didnt really ease the dirt to be rinsed off any eaiser , and actually attract a bit more brake dust ( compared to the other non-applied front wheel )

hi bros, sorry to sound like a limb but situation is in bad shape and the applied wheel attracting more brake dust like mad. Needs to fix it and am thinking if try remove ( via strong cleaning solvent ) or take off wheel to reapply another layer and completely clean, dry, and polish.

anyone else with experiences of this 3M thing on their wheels?

I guess just use detergent.

Audi use it pre-delivery for all of their vehicles. :?

I've just tried a can of spray wheel wash by Sonax, which I bought at Esso gas station. It's working wonders for my wheels, the brake dust is also easily washed off during car wash.
